Maintaining a trucking company may be difficult these days due to the rising fuel and maintenance costs; however, a dedicated fleet may be the answer to your problems. Many large trucking companies have been offering part of their fleet to meet the demands of smaller companies. These larger companies take care of all the details including truck maintenance and driver recruitment. In return for a small fee, they will provide the vehicle, drivers, and a safe, timely delivery of the cargo.
Along with this service, you are guaranteed to have the right vehicle for your freight. Whether it is for short haul or long haul contract, a van, truck, or a trailer, will be provided for your goods, which will be securely transported to its final destination. Most companies offer a guarantee for a timely arrival at the designated destination ensuring that your customers will be happy.
The advantage of this service exists for both, the larger and the smaller trucking companies. The smaller trucking company saves a significant amount of money on its fleet maintenance, upkeep, insurance, and driver recruitment. The savings can give you the opportunity to direct your funds into a new, more profitable direction for the company while keeping your customers satisfied. The larger trucking company keeps its maintenance costs low by purchasing supplies in bulk and attracting enough business to further increase their profits.
A dedicated fleet may give you additional advantages. When running a small business, you may not be able to afford some of the perks customers would enjoy when hiring a bigger company. This may include refrigerated trucking, satellite tracking for valuable cargo, and Internet access to bills of lading. While collaborating with another trucking company, you will be able to give these additional services to your customers. This is a great way to thank them for their business and loyalty.
Are you looking for ways to save money and simultaneously expand your trucking business? Contracting a dedicated fleet is the perfect way to free up some of your funds, keep your current customers happy, and further invest in your business.
